Lol I finally for some sewing done tonight. I basted and quilted Madeline. I've got one line of trim and am going tomorrow to pick up enough for the second line. My problem now is deciding on binding. I have both the dark grey paisley, and some red as well. Or should it be black?
I do think the second line adds a nice balance. So what do you think for binding?
These are gloves for arthritis. They work as a compress, and are called Thermoskin. They are also awesome for quilting.
See all the little grips? Nothing holds like these. They do get a bit warm, but that is part of the point. I managed to do all of Madeline without my hands hurting much at all. Very awesome : )
Thank you for all the well wishes, and commiseration about men in general, DH's in particular. I will take everyone's advice and be very clear next year, and every year, about what I expect. Even if we can't afford gifts, a card and him cooking dinner is expected.
